Best pie crust

You get enough for two pies with this great recipe.

When I made a pie for some farming relatives in Wisconsin, they laughed at my crust.  I guess they thought it was REALLY TERRIBLE.  It was.  And dear Great Aunt Dorothy bestowed her fabulous pie crust recipe to me on the spot.

Here it is:

This recipe makes two double crusts.

Combine:
3 cups white flour
1 and ½ cups soft shortening, I use butter, but lard is great.
1 tsp. Salt

Add:
1 egg, well beaten
5 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice

Blend, divide into 4 balls and store. Freezing is okay.
